    Looking good Rachel, that's a very green feather! :) :thumbsup:

    Smashing photo Harvey :) :thumbsup:

    Sorry buddy! :D Lovely pic there :) :thumbsup:

    @Jack Black Thank you Sir. No, Jack. They have a strict don’t ask, don’t tell wedding cake ordering philosophy.:D

    Your generous nature is only one of your many fine qualities. Say hi to the fellas from the Guardians.

    Impressive Jeff :) :thumbsup:

    I never knew that Chin, though it doesn't entirely surprise me :) I had one yesterday :) I was actually talking to a Cornishmen today, which doesn't happen often, they don't tend to leave. Lovely part of the world, so I don't blame them :) :thumbsup:

    I love the smell of those spices Chin, can't wait :) :thumbsup:

    I'm really looking forward to seeing that post my friend, and it's great to see your Lambshank again :) :thumbsup:

    Excellent Jeff, I’m glad it worked so well for you. You did an excellent job! It looks great.

    Here, here Chin, great pic mate :) :thumbsup:

    Hope they went OK Ron, good to see that one again, and it's a reminder I have too many neglected Lambsfoot knives that deserve some pocket time :thumbsup:

    Yes indeed :) :thumbsup:

    I have to look at these pics now to have faith there is life-after-July & August.:eek: Last two mornings the humidity has been 99%. :eek: (of course I'm not telling Rachel anything new). :D

    ... "neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays"... you my friend from the completion of your photographic duties... :cool: and it is readily apparent :)

    Thanks GT.

    Yeah but what about quilting workshops?... ...Hmmm...???? :rolleyes:

    Thanks Jack.

    Love what Kevin has started!!! ... now ... let me see... :rolleyes:

    LOL! That's good to know my friend, in case I ever get a hankering! :D I am still amazed at the sheer audacity and ambition of your cake request though! :D Thank you very much my friend, nice to see some happy faces - albeit ones caked with fish and chip grease! :D :thumbsup:

    I picked up some Humphrey's Radiant Tea Knives and a Swann-Morton Bread Knife in the market, still in their original boxes :) @ADEE 's missus used to work for Swann-Morton, so I'll pass on the Bread Knife :) :thumbsup:

    Feel free to PM me the story... :D

    I thank God we don't have the humidity that others do. Please Dwight, keep posting the Fall pictures, they are beautiful. :cool::thumbsup:

    I switched over to the Ironwood, he was howling for some attention...

    Thanks. That is a Monk Parakeet feather. They have built nests in my neighborhood. Very pretty and fun to watch, but noisy!
    I really can't complain too much. This summer has been relatively cool so far. Only a couple of days above 100 degrees.

    Nice finds. The box alone, would have been a treasure. You’re a great Sheffield Cutlery Archeologist.:thumbsup:

    Thanks Harvey! Might make a good addition to my earthquake kits... :thumbsup:

    I’m afraid my phrasing was misleading. There was just the one photo of the trio. I meant that I’d considered “The three amigos” before settling on “one for all, all for one” for the caption.

    Thanks for asking. It’s been more stable so far this year. I don’t know whether that is from the conditioning with my wood balm, our atypical weather this spring, its age, or just plain luck. I’ll keep you posted.

    Many thanks!

    I’m looking forward to it, too! I’ll be sure to share thoughts and post pics. I’m hoping to incorporate it into next week’s menu.

    The chiles are taking their time, but I’ll let you know when harvest comes around.

    Thanks for the update. I’m very much looking forward to the longer form notes. They’ll warrant a sit down and savor with a beer or coffee, depending on when I notice them come in. :)

    Hooray for the Humbles!

    Thank you so much, Jack. I had a lot of fun crafting that post.

    Or something is Wright. A. Wright, that is. ;)

    So, you could say you’ve become their chip buddy? Sorry, couldn’t resist. :D

    Great to see the working ones at work. :thumbsup:

    John, the light plays nicely, giving the image a glow, while revealing the figuring of your Ironwood.

    Oh my yes. Great finds Jack!

    Yeah same here. We've had the best Spring and Summer (so far) that we've had in years. If it was extremely hot starting now I still couldn't complain compared to most years.

    You're welcome and thanks, Rosie is a real cut up at supervision:p:D
    Thank you Dwight and that's a wonderful photo...I have to ask, do you have leaves stored some place so you can use them when you want?
    Harvey, you post some excellent photos...this one is tops!
    It sure is frustrating to have all the post finished and all of a suddenly it's gone...many of us have had that happen! That is a wonderful knife, very special horn. I like the pile side best, both are great!
    That is an elegant pot...RALF is looking fine also. I can't tell what the spout is suppose to be/represent, looks to be some on the handle and the lid, please enlighten me. Thanks.
    I like the LSL posts also, Chin, there are many different people,on this forum/thread and their talents and interests are should be told along with the lammies.

    I was thinking they are world beaters:thumbsup:
    Thanks you Jack, these dogs(trial dogs) are truly amazing. Dutch is not at that level, but he's a very capable. To be at that level they need to be with a pro trainer,full time. I did have my last dog with a pro trainer full time and did compete with in field trails with him. He was good at it. When I retired him and he came home to live with me full time, I decided then and there that it's more important for me to have a dog with me that I can enjoy, 24-7. Dutch fills that need in spades. I'll see what I can do about getting a video of him running some marks or a blind.
    Yes, you don't want an angry wolf around the house, huffing and puffing:eek::D
    Here's to the humbles...

    Thanks Preston. For every pic I post there are probably 6 or more very similar that aren't posted. I usually just reach back and get one although I'm absolutely sure many of them are repeats.

    I'm very glad Dutch is an amateur instead of a pro. :) For both of your sakes. :cool:

    Thank you for saying such a nice things, Preston.

    Fine image of your Lambsfoot. One of the fine qualities of your images, is that you’re getting great shadow detail.

    One can certainly appreciate the special connection between you and Dutch. Happy for you.
